Movement can mean many things– how we move our bodies or a rally for change. In this class, Kerry Thompson, a dance teacher who is a person with deafblindness, teaches both kinds of movements to advance disability inclusion for dance. Learn how to create a dance class that uses adapative dance techniques for a range of disabilities, both visible and invisible, while also creating an environment that is inclusive on and off the dance floor.
This workshop is open to anyone at Harvard– both students and faculty– who is teaching or leading dance or movement.
Presented by Harvard Dance Center, Office for the Arts at Harvard.
